Technology at SJNCSlaptop

Advances in technology are dramatically transforming the ways that communities share information. As an educational institution, St. John Neumann Catholic School has the responsibility to prepare its students for the technical world by giving them the tools needed to succeed. The best way to teach students how to succeed in the world’s new media environment is to build technology into the fabric of school life and to immerse students in it.

At SJNCS, technology is embedded in student learning using cross-curricular instruction in addition to weekly technology class in grades K-8. Students participate in keyboarding instruction and practice, and their learning is enhanced by the use of Mimio interactive boards, Smartboards, PCs, laptops, iPads, cell phones, and other technology tools that support the curriculum. Electronic versions of some student texts are available for student use at home. Annually, students and parents are required to sign and adhere to an Acceptable Use Policy regarding technology.

e-Readers/Tablets/iPads – Students in grades 5-8 may bring e-readers/tablets to school to use for reading Accelerated Reader (AR) books they have already downloaded to their device. The students must have parental consent and must have a signed copy of the Bring Your Own Device contract on file in the middle school. Students must adhere to all guidelines set forth in the contract to maintain this privilege.
